Wonder how the “pro-choice” advocates will spin this one:
A 25-year-old Maryland woman, four months pregnant, changed her mind about having an abortion after being taken to the procedure room. She ran back to the clinic entrance where her boyfriend stopped her. You have to get an abortion, he told her. I’ve already paid for it. Three clinic workers and the abortionists surrounded the women, sedated her by injection, and then took her back into the procedure room. After the forced abortion, she awoke in a closet.
But the first account is even more horrific:
On 23 January 2004, in Jane Roe II vs. Aware Women Center for Choice, Inc., the Eleventh Circuit Court ruled that an expectant mother can be aborted by force if the abortionist argues that it is necessary to “protect the health of the mother.”
The story begins on 29 March 1997, when a young, pregnant mother entered the Aware Women Center for Choice clinic in Florida. She was there for an abortion.
Awaiting her was the abortionist, William P. Egherman, who has committed over 10,000 abortions and who has, perhaps not surprisingly, been addicted to alcohol and opiates. He began the procedure by attempting to dilate the woman’s cervix with a 12 millimeter dilator.
“My God, you’re hurting me” the woman began to scream. “You’re killing me, I’ll never be able to have babies…. Stop!”
The woman had had a change of heart. She did not want an abortion. She wanted to keep her baby. And she wanted to leave. Immediately. “Stop. Let me out of here,” she cried.
Instead of respecting the woman’s wishes and stopping the procedure, Egherman called for assistance. Clinic workers held the woman down as Egherman, ignoring the woman’s screams, continued to dilate her cervix. Then he entered the victim with a pair of forceps–“the bear” Ehgerman called them–and began probing and pulling. He mistakenly pulled out part of the woman’s intestines. For the woman, said her attorney, Chris Sapp, it was like being drawn and quartered.
Realizing what he had done, Egherman heavily sedated the woman. Then he called for an ambulance. He instructed the ambulance to come slowly, without lights or sirens, in order to give him “time to pack the woman with gauze.”
Egherman was also worried that his regular flow of business would be interrupted by “all the hoopla.” “Saturday’s our big day,” he explained, “and I didn’t want to generate a lot of… any more confusion, any more panic than was already present at the time. She was loud, and as I said, she was shrill, and there were a lot of patients who were hearing what was going on, and the normal rhythm of the day was interrupted. The other patients must have been terrified, and I didn’t want the ambulance showing up with all the lights and sirens…”
At the hospital, the woman was operated on and the damage to her internal organs repaired. Her baby was found to be dead, and was removed.
